FAO: LEWIS CAPALDI, is a complicated love story about one girl and her hometown. Is it normal to feel this attached after you leave? West Lothian is an average, normal place living under the shadow of the cities of the central belt and maybe there just isn’t enough room for her there anymore.

FAO: LEWIS CAPALDI, is a solo autobiographical comedy show written and performed by Kirsten McPake. Featuring elements of stand-up comedy, storytelling, live music, dance and drag, FAO: Lewis Capaldi, is a chaotic journey of failure and persistence at the end of an era.
